A nation of coffee lovers are now enjoying their favourite drink from morning cup through to evening cocktail, as the UK’s love for coffee booms.
Research shows that almost half of cocktail drinkers regularly choose flavoured cocktails including those mixed with coffee (source: CGA Mixed Drinks Report 2016). From the classic Espresso Martini, to new and innovative serves like the Tia Maria Mint Frappe, coffee cocktails have never been more in demand.
Tia Maria, the UK’s favourite coffee liqueur, is leading this trend with a selection of new serves that unite coffee culture and cocktail hour. The Tia Maria + Coffee Project launches at London Cocktail Week 3 – 9 October, where coffee connoisseurs can sip on cocktails unlike anything they’ve ever tasted before. Serves will be crafted by renowned mixologists working alongside Square Mile Coffee Roasters’ Anette Moldvaer.
Tia Maria ambassador Rod Eslamieh says; “There’s an increasing love for coffee cocktails, which can be seen at world-class bars in London and beyond, while artisan coffee houses are now serving cocktails through the night as a café nightlife culture continues to emerge. The bartender and barista play a very similar role so it’s no surprise we’ve brought the two together to drive this new coffee revolution.”
No other liqueur can make a coffee cocktail quite like Tia Maria, an exotic infusion of natural vanilla and the finest fresh Arabica coffee beans roasted to perfection, complemented with a touch of Jamaican rum. Tia Maria is made using a blend of 100% Arabica coffee, among the best in the world, providing strong character, a full-bodied taste, and a sweet tendency. The beans are expertly roasted, ground and left to macerate to produce this exceptional coffee liqueur.
Oliver Turner, UK Country Director at Tia Maria, adds; “With the taste for coffee at an all-time high, coffee cocktails have never been more popular and Tia Maria is certainly happy to be leading the charge. We’re urging all coffee lovers out there to unite and join us.”
Available nationwide, RRP £15.00 – £16.00 (70cl).
